If you want a wifi 5 router, you can choose R6700 v3 which has a Broadcom CPU inside. If you want an entry-level wifi 6 router, you can choose RAX35.

I just hear horrorstories about Netgear and TP-Link....
I want a good cover of my house (so the bigger the range the better), good speed and reliability. I'm sure most ppl want that tho.. laugh out loud
But anyway.. I probably would want ddwrt or openwrt (have some experience with the former, but it's been years as it is)...

For bigger range, you can use a mesh system. I've heard about the R7800 R8000P has a great coverage range among WiFi 5 routers. For WiFi 6 routers, you should buy RAX75 and above models. The RAX75 is currently $199 in Costco. Also the Asus RT-AX58U and above have good coverage.

I have been using TP-LINK| TL-WDR3600 since 2014 with DD-WRT. Completely stable setup and covers 3500 sq.ft.

I just spent an afternoon with both the RAX35 and RAX75 along with a Dell laptop and a $35 WiFi 6 PCI adapter. Both clients are based on Intel AX200.

Client about 30 feet away and 2 walls apart. FIOS is around 300mpbs. Network drivers are latest available from Intel.

Router 5Ghz performance is flakey at best. When router first boots, I'm getting 300/300 on 5Ghz. After 30 minutes speed ranges from 2 to 50 mpbs. Not a typo. 2 mpbs. 2.4 GHz is around 100/100 (max available on 2.4 GHz).

My R7000 router from a couple of years ago gives 250/300 on 5Ghz (WiFi 5) consistently.

In summary, don't waste your time getting either router at this time. These two are going back to Walmart and Costco respectively.

I've used 5 of these in the last 6 weeks and all of them have been rock solid. Make sure you upgrade the firmware. FYI - my walmart had these on sale today for $80...

I just bought 1 for $45 at a local Walmart @ 78245. I went to score an AC2100 for $59 and saw the AX3000 for $75. I went for this instead and it scanned for $45. I have the copy of receipt but I don't know how to upload it.

What channel are you using for 5Ghz? Try changing it to one of 36/40/44.

What you are describing is an issue in some of the RAX models firmware when you're on a DFS frequency (Channel 52-148) and it detects Radar singals. Picking a channel outside of that range avoids the problem entirely.

How would anyone compare this to the Nighthawk X6 R8000? I've owned this router for a few years now and unsure if I should upgrade. Speeds have been very inconsistently lately. Any advice would be appreciated.
